COLLEGIATE DEPARTMENT. 



TERMS OP ADMISSION. 

Candidates for admission must produce testimonials of good 
moral character ; and if from another College, evidence of regu- 
lar dismission. 

The proper time for examination is on Tuesday preceding 
Commencement, and the day before the opening of the Fall 
Session. 

Students are admitted only on examination, both of the pre- 
paratory studies and of those previously pursued by the class 
which they desire to enter. When admitted to an advanced 
class, a fee of $5 is charged for each year's advancement, except 
when the student comes from another College. 

Candidates for the Freshman Class are examined on the fol- 
lowing books : 

English, ...Grammar; Geography; Outlines of Ancient 

and Modern History ; Ancient Geography. 
Mathematics,. .Arithmetic; Algebra through Quadratic Equa- 
tions, with one unknown quantity. 

Latin, Andrews and Stoddard's Grammar; Cornelius 

Nepos, or Latin Reader; Caesar (two books, ^ 
Virgil's ^Eneid (four books), or their equiv- 
alents. 

Greek, Crosby's or Hadley's Grammar and Xenophon's 

Anabasis. 
The Grammar School of the Institution presents peculiar 
advantages to those who wish to be thoroughly prepared for 
admission. 



DICKINSON COLLEGE. 



DEPARTMENTS. 

The Board of Trustees have established the following scheme 
of Departments of Study, and purpose to carry it out on the 
University principle of Elective Courses, as the means at their 
command shall enable them to do so. 

I. Moral Science. 

II. Ancient Languages and Literature 

III. Pure Mathematics. 

IV. Philosophy and English Literature, including History 
and Constitutional Law. 

V. Physics and Mixed Mathematics, and the application of 
Calculus to Natural Philosophy, Astronomy and Mechanics. 

VI. Chemistry, and its application to Agriculture and the 
Arts. 

VII Physical Geography, Natural History, Mineralogy and 
Geology. 

VIII. Biblical Literature and Hermeneutics. 

IX. Modern Languages. 

X. Civil and Mining Engineering, and Metallurgy. 

The scheme embraces much more than can be accomplished 
in four years ; and it was further agreed that those students who 
wish to obtain the Collegiate Degrees, shall devote the earlier 
part of their course as heretofore mainly to the elements of Clas- 
sical learning and the Pure Mathematics j but that, for the lat- 
ter part, certain studies be made optional, and that those who 
go through any of the prescribed special courses, as they may 
elect, shall be graduated Bachelors of Arts equally with those 
who complete the Classical Course 



18 DICKINSON COLLEGE. 

SCIENTIFIC COURSE. 



According to the preceding announcement, such students as 
desire, are allowed to substitute Practical Chemistry for the 
Latin and Greek of the Junior and Senior years, and graduate 
with the usual degree of Bachelor of Arts 

The Scientific Department at present affords opportunity for 
instruction and practice in rudimentary chemical analysis — 
qualitative and quantitative, — and pharmaceutical chemistry, 
enabling the students to become familar with the more common 
minerals, and the general methods for testing them. To such 
as desire to devote themselves to the medical profession, it gives 
a more practical acquaintance with general and medical chem- 
istry than is usually acquired at our medical schools. 

Donations of apparatus, minerals, &c 5 are solicited from the 
friends of scientific education for this growing department, as 
it has been necessary, by reason of insufficient means and proper 
appliances, to limit the number of admissions. 

The students of this Department have organized themselves 
into an association for the promotion of its interests. The for- 
mation of detailed rules and regulations for the laboratory and 
library connected with it, is for the most part permitted to this 
society.

DICKINSON COLLEGE. 23 

Kuehner's Greek Grammar ; Ramshorn's Latin Synonyms ; Da- 
vies k Peck's Mathematical Dictionary; Fowler's English 
Grammar; Webster's or Worcester's, Unabridged Dictionary ; 
Worcester's Historical Atlas; Findlay's, or Butler's Classical. 
Atlas; Story on the Constitution. 



Tuition is given to such as desire it, in the Spanish, Italian, 
Anglo-Saxon and Syriac Languages, for which an extra charge 
is made. 

The instruction in Philosophy and English Literature 
is given partly by recitations in History, Rhetoric, Logic, Po- 
litical .Economy, Metaphysics and Constitutional Law, and partly 
by lectures on the English Language and Literature, the 
Philosophy of History and Polity, and the History of Philoso- 
phy. Practical exercises in Writing and Speaking also receive 
special attention in this department. 

The Course in the Natural Sciences includes recitations 
from text books, and lectures accompanied by illustrations and 
experiments. The apparatus is extensive and valuable, and 
annually increasing. 

In the Mathematical department there are daily lecita. 
tions. In the senior year, lectures are given on the theories 
and applications of the higher branches. 

In the Classical department it frequently happens, that 
either different authors, or different portions of the same author, 
are read by successive classes ; but this fact does not affect the 
amount of Greek and Latin required of those who apply for 
admission to the higher classes. 



24 DICKINSON COLLEGE. 

BIBLICAL COURSE. 

Young men preparing for the ministry, who cannot take a full 
course, can take a select course adapted to their wants, which 
can be accomplished in two years after they are fully prepared 
to enter the Freshman Class. The essential parts of such a 
course are the following : 

First Year, The Latin, Greek and Mathematics of the 

Freshman Class: Mental Philosophy begun 
with the Sophomore Class; Hebrew begun . 
Second Year, Mental Philosophy completed, Logic; Rhet- 
oric; Paley's Evidences; Moral Philosophy; 
Butler's Analogy; New Testament Greek; 
Hebrew; Biblical Archaeology^; Ecclesias- 
tical History. 
Other kindred s'udies may be embraced according to the 
time and capacity of the student 

The Patronizing Conferences direct the attention of young 
men, who are candidates for the Ministry, to this course in the 
following Preamble and Resolution : 

Whereas, Dickinson College provides for a course of in- 
struction in the elements of Moral and Biblical Science and 
Literature ; and 

Whereas, This course is adjusted to the wants of those 
young men who are preparing for the Ministry, and who cannot 
take the full classical course. Therefore, 

Resolved, That we advise those young men within our I ounds, 
who feel called to preach the Gospel, to avail themselves, as far 
as practicable, of the i\ '.vantages of this course of instruction 



RECITATIONS. 

At the daily recitations, where the text admits of it. the old 
catechetical method of instruction is avoided as much as possi- 



DICKINSON COLLEGE. 25 

ble, and the student required to give a connected view of the 
subject in his own language, and without the aid of the profes- 
sor, except on points not fully treated by the author, — thus 
cultivating at once the powers of memory, thought and dis- 
course. 

When the subject is susceptible of it, a written analysis of 
the previous lesson is required at each recitation; and at the 
public examination, a written analysis of the whole work.

Students now board in clubs or voluntary associations.'carefully 
organized and managed by themselves, constituting families of 
from fifteen (o twenty persons each. The expense varies from 
$3 50 to $4 00 a week. Others board at such private boarding 
houses in town as are approved of by the Faculty, in which 
the price of Board varies from $4 00 to $5 00. Washing is 
$1 50 per month, or 37 }> cents per dozen.

The Grammar School is designed to^prepare students for 
College, and the studies are arranged mainly to that end ; but 
the course of studies is such as to meet the wants of those also 
who wish only an elementary English course. 

For admission to this department, the student must be at 
least ten years of age, and have some acquaintance with the 
elementary English branches. It will be well for students to 



32 DICKINSON COLLEGE.

The government of the Institution is mild and parental. It 
is designed to secure attention to study and correctness of de- 
portment, not so much by the enforcement of rigid rules, as by 
cultivating in the student a taste for intellectual pursuits and 
virtuous habits. But while youthful indiscretion will be treated 
with lenity, incurable indolence, bad morals, and pecuniary ex- 
travagance, will not be suffered to remain, to corrupt the good 
manners of students. 

A faithful record is kept of the standing and deportment of 
each student, and a report is sent monthly to his parents or 
guardian. 

Text Books and Stationery are kept for sale at the College, 
at prices below the city prices. 



34 DICKINSON COLLEGE. 



FINANCIAL AFFAIRS OF THE STUDENT. 

As economy is indispensable to the welfare of both the Col- 
lege and the student, and all experience teaches that youth 
should not be allowed the uncontrolled use of money, attention 
is called to the following extracts from the Statutes of the 
College. Though the faithful observance of these rules may 
not, in all cases, secure the economy desired, it will doubtless 
prove a salutary check upon temptations to extravagance and 
vice: 

1. Every minor, whose parent or guardian does not reside 
in Carlisle, shall select some member of the Faculty as his 
Patron, who shall have special oversight of his deportment, and 
whose duty it shall be to afford such counsel as his circum- 
stances require. 

2. All funds for the use of a student shall be deposited with 
his Patron : and no student shall be permitted to remain in the 
Institution, who shall obtain money from any other source, un- 
less he immediately deliver it to his Patron. 

3. The Patron shall ascertain at the beginning of each session 
what expenses each student is allowed to incur, and be strictly 
governed by such information in his disbursements. 

4. No Student shall contract any bill without the permission 
of his Patron. 

5. College bills have the preference; all others according to 
the date of presentation; provided, that no bills shall be paid 
for horse or carriage hire, confectionery, fruit, eatables of any 
kind, or other articles unnecessary for a student, 

6. The Patron is at liberty to furnish such pocket money as 
the parent or guardian may prescribe, provided it does not ex- 
ceed what in his judgment, with the advice of the President, 
the interest of the student and of the Institution may require, 
and in no case shall it exceed one dollar a month 



DICKINSON COLLEGE. 35 

7. In case any student shall borrow money, or contract any 
bill, contrary to the rules of the College, he shall be dealt with 
as for a high offence, and the payment of such a bill by him or 
for him, shall subject him to such a discipline as the circum- 
stances may demand. 

8 In the monthly report of each student, his Patron shall 
state the items of expenditure since the last report, together 
with the amount of funds received. The accounts of the Patron 
shall, at all times, be open to the inspection of the President 
and Faculty. 

9. The Patron shall not be held personally responsible for 
any bill of any student. The expenses of correspondence in 
the discharge of his duties shall be charged to the accounts of 
the students concerned. As compensation for trouble, and risk, 
he may charge a commission of three per cent, on all moneys 
paid out.
